#AllBlackLivesMatter The demands of our last action were not met in full so we restate and escalate them and keep the feet of our oppressors to the fire: We Demand: -Justice* for Tony McDade
-Justice* for Breonna Taylor -Justice* for George Floyd
-That the Chicago City Council defund CPD by 75% and reinvest those funds into social services and community programs
-That police be banned from marching in Pride festivities indefinitely
-Immediate release of all protesters from previous BLM actions
*Justice being the abolishment of the system that took these lives and that restorative systems grow in their stead.
